Since getting the webcam inbuilt microphone to work I now have another problem :-(
I have now removed the webcam (USB) but the KMix icon on the kicker bar doesn't adjust nor mute 
the speakers. I tried all the configuration option in all the places I could find but still no 
BUT, if I start a downloaded video using DragonPlayer I then get an extra option in the Kmix 
mixer under the Playback Streams named 'dragonplayer: Playback Stream' and I can then adjust the 
sound level and mute it.
If I play a YouTube video I then get, under the Playback Streams, one named 'ALSA plug-in 
[plugin-container]: Alsa Playback' and again I can adjust sound levels and mute it.

Under System Settings > Multimedia > Phonon I have the laptops internal sound card selected for 
everything and the 'test' button works - there is sound.

So how do I get the Kmix icon on the kicker bar to give me back my sound level control?
